New theme installation systeme

New theme installation systeme

Downloads:  361
Submitted:  Oct 10 2007
Updated:  Oct 10 2007

Description:

I think that a new system about installation of new style would be useful :
Currently, if you want to install a new style, or window decoration, what do you have to do ?
Go to kde-look, take a look at the screenshot, download the file, install the package (or build the source, if the right package isn't available), then launch kcontrol, and select your new theme...

My idea is to create something like when you install a new firefox extension (or like apturl that is coming on gutsy) : A specialised windows that asks you what do you want to do with the new qt style, window decoration or other, containing informations, options, preview...
I think this would make really easier customization of KDE.
Look at the picture to see what i mean.

It just a mockup, and i don't know if it's really possible...

Please say what do you think about this idea !
And sorry for my bad english :/




Changelog:

add the screenshot that didn't was uploaded

 style packs

New styles/decorations should not be included in rpm/deb files, but in native KDE packages.

You would download them and open (by default) in kcontrol to install them. You might be asked for a type of installation (local user/global) and for a root password if needed.

And much more default styles and decorations should be available in KDE by default.

 won't happen

For a few reasons.
#1 Package management is *not* KDE's responsibility it should be handled by the distribution.
#2 because package management is *not* KDE's responsibility it doesn't know if you have all the required packages installed.

Each of those has a reason there is no point click installation method, and that is they must be compiled and installed.
Compiled requires you to have a compiler and all header files used in each of the styles. Something that is not always on everyone's computer.
You cannot just ship a binary because that'd be specific to the distribution. meaning you'd have to have a package for each distribution figured out in your point-click method. Something that again is *not* KDE's responsibility.

In short, this idea will never happen. Sorry.

Oh, it's not funny :/

But are you sure that the themes of kde4 will be in deb/rpm or other packages ? Won't it be like ultr asked, in native kde package ?

Well you say it won't happen but it already has been done ... in Amarok for example, there is a download manager to install new theme.

Theme are not like programs (well it depends of the kind of theme it is) that need to be compiled, you can ship XML theme for example (and I think most KDE's themes are done this way).

So it should be possible to change and install new themes without the root authorization and without the package manager.

I think it's .deb because it's SVG theme. I think it will be *.svg rename *.kde.

KDE4 it's not the same thing taht KDE 3.5. KDE 3.5 use png icone and a lot of plug-in to give a beautiful look, But KDE4 use a new technologie, the SVG.

 Too bad

As fun as this would be for the noobies, it's too bad it won't work.

Qt style engines are going to require compilation no matter what.

This could only really work for color schemes, icon sets and cursor schemes.. but that would be cool.



... But maybe it's just better that Linux isn't point and click, Windows-fare.


Don't you get it? If you die in Canada, you die in real life!

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
